A real night

Rajesh Joshi
Translated from Hindi

The Sun dreamt of becoming the moon
The moon of becoming a billion stars

Bread fell into a dream of becoming a doe
Jumping around in a forest
I came out of a cave
With a bow and arrows

Suddenly from behind a tree
Prowling
A cheetah caught the doe!

After this the real night came
And nobody had
Anything to dream of.
